WYD will be a litmus test of how Panama functions on the World Stage. (Hotels, Transportation, Security)

With well over a year of preparations under the belt, the Pope he is a coming. And bringing flocks of followers and congregations with him. World Youth Day is a HUGE event for this country. Perhaps the BIGGEST that has EVER occurred.

I for one hope that is goes as smoothly as possible. In a year where the administration of Varela has been pre-occupied with (IMO) establishing him as a leader to be noticed, the focus should be on making the NATION one to be noticed.

Well, the time is here and I am hopeful all facets of the Panamanian infrastructure perform perfectly and represent the country and its people well. It will be a huge challenge. Tocumem will have to run smoothly. An already jammed and congested traffic situation will have to be controlled. The security forces and the Police will be challenged with crowds that have never before been seen or dealt with.

The Metro, which is being used in test runs, will have to play a big part of moving people through Panama.

And all for an event that brings light to the children of the world and a focus on religion to bring people together. I am very hopeful, and will be watching with great passion for my new home as this massive event occurs.

Saludos

How much death truly associated to the completion of the WORLD CUP???

For those that are soccer fans (like me), there is an interesting documentary on NETFLIX about the awarding of the World Cop of 2022 to QATAR. Indeed it was an odd and curious choice. Much ado of fraud and kickbacks started the investigations into FIFA.  Now other groups are investigating …

LMFAO. What is the lesson to be learned here? ASSHOLE of MONTH is back.

I’m sorry if I have to laugh at someone else’s misfortune,,,,,,but for the love of God, this tactic of trying to be famous for nothing needs to end. With Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and now Tik Tok, an entire billion dollar enterprise that produces literally NOTHING has been born. They are …
